    Creating Basic Reports with PI DataLink Online Course (English)
    Aug 19 - Sep 07, 2018 | Online
    In this online course, you will learn how to use this tool to access your process data, create meaningful reports, and use them to make key decisions about your plant performance. PI DataLink is our add-in that allows users to access and deliver data to and from Microsoft Excel and create easy-to-read reports.

    Through online videos and hands-on exercises, we will guide you on how to obtain current and archived values for a tag, as well as to retrieve compressed and sampled data. Additionally, this course leverages the intuitive Asset Framework structures to enable you to retrieve key attributes of an asset, such as current, archived, compressed, and sampled values.

    Audience

    This course is for beginning users of the PI System and is often an individual’s first look at OSIsoft's products. PI System managers often take this class as well. Sometimes members of a PI System project team take this class to get an “executive overview” of the capabilities of the PI System. System integrators who work with OSIsoft customers should also take this class.Students in the past have been:
    • Engineers, production managers, process operators, instrument technicians, project team members, information system analysts and computer support personnel

    Note: Learners are encouraged to use their own software and their own data structures. This allows each learner to leave the course with something immediately valuable in their enterprise.

    Don't have access to your own PI System?

    This online course can be purchased together with the Cloud Environment, an isolated and safe PI system sandbox, designed to enhance your learning experience. You will have access to the Cloud Environment for 21 days since the initial launch.

    Visualizing PI System Data with PI Vision Online Course (English)
    Aug 19 - Sep 07, 2018 | Online


    In this self-paced online course, you will learn how to easily build dynamic, graphical, interactive web-based dashboards with PI Vision. This course will be dedicated to a series of exercises where the student is challenged to solve real-world problems using PI Vision. By the end of the course, you will have a working knowledge and new skills to use toward problem-solving with the PI System Data.

    Final Project - Build A Set of PI Vision Displays To Monitor My Process


    The course ends with a challenge to use all of the PI Vision features presented in class to build a complete data solution. The goal of this is two-fold: to reinforce in the student the new skills learned in the class and to allow more time for the student to ask questions and get clarification on concepts prior to returning to their job. If a student has access to their own PI System data, they will use this to build displays. If the student does not have access to their own data, they will use an AF Example Kit with demo data for an industry of their choosing.

    Building PI System Assets and Analytics with PI AF (English)
    Aug 28 - Aug 31, 2018 | San Leandro, USA

    The Building PI System Assets and Analytics with Asset Framework (AF) class provides a working knowledge of the power of the AF Server, an integral part of the PI System. You will learn to define consistent representations of organizational assets and/or equipment and use these representations in simple or complex analyses that yield critical and actionable information. AF allows an application designer to identify and customize the components or elements that make up a process, associate real-time, relational or calculated data with these elements, specify organizational structure via hierarchies or connectivity relationships, and apply calculations or rules against these assets and determine how results should be displayed.

    In this class we discuss and build basic AF elements and attributes, construct calculations, and configure relational database queries. In a simulated environment, Asset Analytics are used to calculate metric data for the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). We see how Event Frames are applies to monitor the production process for downtime situations and for process excursions. We explore the visualization of the information with different products of the PI Visualization Suite. In the advanced exercises we discuss combining the various elements to provide users complex information structures. We will build connections to relational databases and use that information in displays and analytics.

    Also covered in detail will be Notifications which allows users to configure custom alarms through a standard user interface based on any data source. Leveraging the generic data access and template-driven capabilities of AF users can redeploy alarm parameters in Notifications to similar assets across the Enterprise. When operational excursions occur, Notifications can send alerts to a single recipient, a group of contacts, or an escalation team that reflects the organization's chain of command.

    The class is four days long. Class will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. (9:00 a.m. in Europe, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand) and is scheduled to run until 4:30 p.m. We will break for lunch for one hour each day. When making travel arrangement for the class, please plan to remain on site to the completion of the final exercise. This should be no later than 4:30 on the last day of the class.
